Coming Home From Romania

This post is a continuation of our trip home from Romania back in June.
We stopped just long enough to say "hello" at the nursing home.

And then we were off to the airport to fly to Germany. We spent the night at the Regent Motel in Munich.

I spotted this sewing machine just inside the lobby.

I made good use of the 10 hour flight home hand stitching on my hexie quilt.

What a lovely welcome. These grands came to surprise me for my birthday!

Flying to Rapid Response Meeting

Paul and I recently flew with Joel and Sheila ...

... to Indiana / Kentucky for a Rapid Response Meeting.

Supper at Hinkle Hamburgers in Madison, IN.

The view from our balcony the next morning.

At 3 in the morning we were evacuated from the building. We still don't know why!

I worked on my hexies on our way home.

Thanksgiving Day and Wonky Quilts

I was thankful for Afton and Keyona’s help in peeling potatoes for mashed potatoes for our Thanksgiving lunch.

Mother enjoys a moment with her great grandson Teryn Ray.

Quinten smoked a turkey for our lunch. Evie made gravy and carved the turkey.

After lunch I pulled out a gingerbread house for the grandchildren to help decorate.

Evie did a wonderful job squeezing the icing, letting the children place the candy on the house, and keeping order.

I think I like Dr. Seuss’ books as much as the children. And I’m always glad “that the Grinch’s small heart grew three sizes that day!”

Afton is basting her quilt getting it ready for the machine quilting.

She bundled up for an airplane ride and then had some waiting time so she diligently kept on quilting.

Keyona getting her quilt basted.

Mother’s hexagons are making beautiful flowers. Just look how nice and flat they lay.

All finished except hand stitching the binding to the back.

And June did a lot of that hand stitching.

Thanksgiving Guests, Keyona and Afton Quilt

Life …
My sister June and Jim brought two of their grandchildren and Mother to Mississippi to visit us over the Thanksgiving holidays.

We took them out to Bogue Chitto Cotton Gin for a tour. Paul shows them a hand full of cotton seeds.

Keyona and Afton watch the cotton bales being wrapped for shipment.

This is our group watching the loud machines strip the cotton from the seeds. Actually there are saw blades that pick the seeds from the lint.

… as a Quilter

Keyona and Afton are trying to pick some fabric to make a small quilt.

We decided on making “wonky” squares like Gina, Carolyn, and Dana to make it easy. I set up my trusty old Bernina 1130 in my SewEasy table for Keyona.

Afton used Amy’s trusty Bernina 1260 set up on Paul’s desk.

June sat at my desk doing beautiful hand work with silk ribbon and thread on her black velvet diamonds.

Mother sat back in the corner hand stitching her hexies together, a project that Polly helped get started for her. She loves it and her points are coming out very precise and the flowers lay nice and flat.

Ashton had his own ideas about making quilt blocks and used my trusty Bernina 170 to make his creation.

My job was to cut the strips for the girls, guide them in their sewing, watch out for Ashton and do whatever else that needed to be done.
